Hanoi 7 Days 6 Nights Trip Report and Itinerary

Hanoi (Vietnam) . 2013 . Aug 7 - 13

The Halong Bay in Hanoi, Vietnam has been one of the places that we have in our travel bucket list. The opportunity to visit Halong Bay came when we chanced upon a relative cheap deal by Vietnam Airlines for the Singapore National Day period. We were pleasantly surprised by the price we paid - SGD$240 for a return trip on the full service carrier (including 20kg luggage, meal and taxes) which was comparable to what one would have paid for a budget carrier!

Do note that citizens of some countries may require a visa to enter Vietnam. For your convenience, we are pleased to introduce our Vietnam Visa Travel Partner (Best way to get Vietnam visa). Do check the requirements before your trip! :)

Here's our itinerary with some photos and links to our reviews for our trip.
